HUGH  L. McCOLL, Jr.,  2005 AWARD AGAINST INDIFFERENCERECIPIENT

“What I want us to do is to build communities of justice, equality and hope – communities where every man, woman and child – regardless of race—pulls their weight, even as they reach back with a strong hand and a compassionate heart for those – once again, regardless of race – who have been left behind.” Born in 1935 in Bennettsville, S.C., Hugh McColl, Jr. earned a B.A. in Business Administration at UNC – Chapel Hill. After serving two years as an officer in the U. S. Marine Corps, he began a career in banking as a loan officer before ultimately being elected Chairman and CEO in 1983. Under Mr. McColl’s leadership, Bank of America grew 50-fold creating the largest banking institution in the United States.  Throughout his adult life Mr. McColl has been a champion of economic opportunity and education. He believes “no two principles are more basic to the foundation of our country than individual freedom and personal responsibility.”
